This year, the Integrity Charitable Foundation has partnered with Crossroads Hope Academy as its 2023 Nonprofit Organization of Choice.
Crossroads Hope Academy is a non-profit 501(c)(3) home for foster boys who have had multiple failed placements in the foster care system. Their program offers a unique combination of education, treatment and behavioral services that provides a sense of normalcy for the kids whose lives have been anything but normal. Youth are provided the opportunity to transform their lives through positive and motivating programming that inspires learning, leadership, and personal growth. Caring, positive role models at Crossroads Hope Academy provide youth the tools they need to transition into a successful home placement or an independent living program working together with biological families, foster families, adoptive families, and community resources.
In order to achieve these goals, Crossroads Hope Academy offers comprehensive mental health services which include substance abuse counseling, trauma-focused CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), gender-specific treatment, individual cognitive behavioral therapy, in addition to collaborative problem solving and a rewards based system, individualized education support, hands-on learning through experiential opportunities and vocational and employability skills development via Casey life skills and industry recognized certification courses.
